Challenge #26 November

Hello and welcome to 
Not Just Cards Challenge Blog

Theme Always Anything Goes
Unlimited Entries
Unlimited links to other challenges
Unlimited fun!!

All we ask is you follow us please

Wow, we have past the 300 followers mark a big thank you to everyone for following us,
playing along and joining the fun.

We also have a Facebook Group where you can come and share your wonderful creations
This group is brand new so come along and support us

I have opened up a Paper Crafting Facebook group. I recently had some of my work deleted from a group as I 'didn't follow the rules' so I have set up a group that has very few rules. 

I allow links to your blog, the image you have used and any form of promoting challenges you are on. I allow promotions of new releases, freebies and anything that's craft related.  

I would love you all to come and join me and spread the word about the group. Please bear with me as its all very new, please but feel free to start posting your recent work as soon as you wish 

We have some new sponsors this month to Not just Cards, a big warm welcome from the team and a BIG thank you for sponsoring us. We also have some of our old favourites joining us which we are so thankful to them for their continued support of our group. I hope you all had fun last month with our Blog Hop, it was so nice to see so many of you join in the fun.

The challenges are monthly. These will be the first Monday of the month. We will still have lots of fantastic sponsors and a fantastic design team. I have relaxed things for the team, they are now welcome to make cards or non card projects, but we always welcome you to try something new.

We also appreciate every single one of you that joins in our challenges but as you can see by todays post our team is always busy creating and playing. So, I have taken the choice to make commenting optional for our team. I am sure you can image the amount of work I throw at the girls and they are an amazing team, they just get on with it and a lot more, so I hope you are happy with this choice but we will, where we can, make time to come and visit you.

Now onto our challenge, this month we have 3 wonderful sponsors
SLS LinesRobyns Fettish and Shadow Clocksy

I work as an illustrator and graphic designer and also as the Art Director of ArtTrader Magazine.  Prior to freelance illustrating, I worked as a Creative Designer for a music firm working with TV and advertising clients. And before that, in marketing and project management.
I spend my days and nights drawing geeky things like RPG characters, zombies, fairies, awkward people, pretty girls and odd animals. I love drawing comics and cartoon style art! I offer a broad range of fun digital stamps in many themes from geeky to cute and whimsical to realistic. My digital stamps start life as sketchy little doodles which are then cleaned up digitally in Photoshop and made presentable and perfect for you.

My favorite tools are my Wacom pen and tablet as well as Copic markers, lots of fineliners and many types of erasers (which are used often). My favorite artists include John Singer Sargent, Norman Rockwell, JC Leyendecker, Joe Sorren and Phil Hale. And Steve Epting too.
